Welcome to the CBA’s webpages for teachers.
Archaeology is a great subject to teach. Not only is it a broad subject with many ways to apply more abstract principles (eg radiocarbon to illustrate isotopes in chemistry or physics), but it also has the ability to excite and enthuse learners with a subject that is truly different to that which they have studied in other lessons.
Within schools the scope for using archaeology is not limited to the history classroom. Archaeology can be used to examine citizenship, language, mathematics, science, religion, art as well as technology, design, music etc. There are few subjects with such a broad reach.
We have divided our content for teachers into several sections to make accessing the information you need easier:
- Can I teach archaeology? (a guide for those wanting to start teaching archaeology).
- I want to become a tutor in adult and continuing education
- My school/college want to provide an archaeology course – how can you help?
If you can’t find what you want on our website, please contact us. Additionally we’d love to hear about new ideas or how you are using archaeology in your teaching.
